Aug 16 Guru Diksha Devotee Experiences

 

Sairam to all my divine fellow beings.

After Babaji’s visit to Malagar, I have been getting calls from many who have attended the Gurudeeksha day, some of them to express their gratitude for inviting them and some sharing their experience after Babaji’s darshan. I am sharing here two such experiences.

One mother had come with her 6 year old son who had heart problem and he had to undergo open heart surgery on 19th of September and the Doctor had told them that the boy’s condition is very critical and they cannot even give a 30 percent success rate. Babaji blessed the child with vibhuti water and told his mother not to worry as nothing will happen to her child and he will be fine. On 20th September, the child’s mother called me to say the operation went on well and doctors had told that he will be back to his normal conscious state in 3 days but the boy recovered the very next day after the surgery and started talking normally. She has conveyed her heartfelt gratitude at Babaji’s lotus feet. Continue Reading

Aug 16, 2018 – Devotee Q&A

Devotee Question: During prayers, bhajans, the mind finds ekagratha(Oneness with God), Shanthi(peace), a happiness, how do we carry this over to other times? At other times, we don’t find this, why?

Babaji’s answer: Swami has given an easy 5 fold path – Sathya, Dharma, Prema, Shanthi, Ahimsa. It is not necessary that you follow all these 5 paths at the same time. Sometimes, you  do speak the untruth – like when someone calls on the phone and you may say tell them I am not here. Whatever is easier in this 5 fold path – Sathya, Dharma, Prema, Shanthi, Ahimsa, you follow one of these ardently. If it is easier for you to talk with love, work with love and be loving with others, then chose that. If it is easier for you to speak the truth, stick to this. When you follow one of these, the other four will come automatically.

August 16, 2018 – Main Discourse

Sairam

Everyone is seeking  a God who does miracles, especially in these days. What we cannot really see, yet watch it happen, that is a miracle. And we are all seeking a God who will give us whatever we ask.

What is a miracle? When we think of miracles, we think of the miracles of Swami, we all know about this, like the way Swami manifested statues etc, miracles that have happened till today and will continue.

Everyone has a limit to their intellectual capacity, a limit to their thinking process. Those experiences in life that are beyond what one can think or imagine, when one sees, hears, feels or experiences such  a thing,  it is a miracle. One can think until the limits of his thinking powers, what happens beyond one can never know or reach.
